2017 Italian GP Post-Race Stats

Magnificent Monza was not quite as good as hoped, though the Italian GP definitely had its moments.

Qualifying was soaking wet and over two hours delayed, but once it eventually finished Hamilton took a record breaking 69th pole position. Max Verstappen qualified second, Daniel Ricciardo third and surprisingly Lance Stroll fourth. Ferrari lacked all pace and were only in seventh and eighth.

But the big talking point around qualifying? Grid penalties. 155 places worth of penalties were dished out before the race. 155. To 11 different drivers. Kevin Magnussen dropped out of Q1, qualified 16th, but due to the sheer number of penalties given out he started the race in ninth place. The penalty system just doesn’t work.

Anyway back to the race, Hamilton won his 59th race and 38th win from pole position. Valtteri Bottas followed home in second and Sebastian Vettel some way down in third. Daniel Ricciardo took the fastest lap of the race and pulled off some spectacular overtakes in the race on his way to fourth. Ricciardo qualified in third, started 16th after penalties and finished fourth, gaining an impressive 12 places in the race.

Lance Stroll started on the front row, becoming the youngest front row starter in F1 history, but could only finish in seventh, with his teammate just behind in eighth. Esteban Ocon also had a terrific grid position, starting third, but the best he could finish was fifth.

Not a single change in the Constructors’ Championship. In the Drivers’ Championship there were just two changes, but one was a rather big one. For the first time all season Hamilton leads the championship by just three points. Lance Stroll has jumped back ahead of Romain Grosjean as well, the two are tied on points but Stroll’s podium gives him the position.
